Apple Releases Second Beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.4 to Public Beta Testers

Apple has released the second beta of macOS Mojave 10.14.4 to public beta testers registered in the Apple Beta Program. The release comes just a day after the Cupertino tech giant released it to developers. Those with Macs registered in the program should have the release available under Settings>Software Updates.

macOS Mojave 10.14.4 is largely considered a maintenance update to the platform but does include some new features along with those fixes and improvements. Like iOS 12.2, Mojave 10.14.4 brings support for Apple News in Canada. The service will bring articles in both English and French to Canadian users when it is released to the public. 10.14.4 also brings expanded support of Touch ID on compatible MacBooks to Safari. You can now fill in passwords and other form information in Safari by authenticating with Touch ID.

There is no officially word from Apple on when we can expect the release to come to the general public. Generally, Apple issues four-to-six beta builds prior to it being approved for public consumption. Doing a bit of math, that pegs the release sometime late this month or early in March. That assumes of course that no major bugs are found in the beta process – which is the entire point.

As a reminder, Average Apple Guy does not recommend installing beta OS builds on your daily use Macs.
